What determines whether or not a child is spoiled or privileged and is it necessarily a wrong thing to do?
I ask this question because I know of two familes.
Family number 1: One family is poor but the mother allows her children to do anything they want. All of her daughters are selfish and are always looking for handouts from people even though they live simply. The mother raises all of their children and does not all push them to further themselves in education or career wise. She makes excuses for them. The mom allows men to sleep over in her daughter's home since they were young and bring home children without any of these men marrying the girls. Then the mother cries to everyone about how 'hard' her children have it.
Family number 2. There is an only child who was the first and only grandchild for many years so she was able to get alot of attention and love. The grandmother would always shower her with gifts and money but the child was not the type to beg anyone for anything. She also saw how hard her family worked and did not want to take advantage. She is also very generous. She was also reared to have ambition and no children out of wedlock.
My point is....does money and gifts determine whether or not a child is spoiled? ...Is raising a child with privilege a good or bad thing?
